Appearing in Court


Only certain violations may be disposed of without your personal appearance in court. Carefully read the summons and instruction sheet accompanying it to determine whether you are allowed to dispose of your case without personal court appearance, and call the court office if you have any questions. You must appear in court if you are involved in an accident, and you must appear in court if directed to do so by a police officer or by court personnel.

If you must (or choose to) appear in court, be aware of the following:

Paying a ticket without appearing in Court

Note that not all offenses/summonses require a personal court appearance. Most traffic offenses can be disposed of without appearing in court, by pleading guilty and paying a fine and costs. See here for details on pleading guilty without going to court.

Note: If you are involved in an accident, you MUST appear in court. No other means of resolution is allowed.
